Ways to Use It Challenge, Sketch Challenge


I have been so busy, so today I combined yesterday's Sketch Challenge from SCS and today's Way to Use It Challenge in which we were to embellish our envelopes. I often do this already, but lately I have been doing the inside of my cards. Maybe next time we will be doing that!! Anyways, I started out with a piece of Certainly Celery for my base. Then a Close to Cocoa layer and then three strips if Real Red and Chatterbox dp. The image is from Rubber Stampede and the hostess set Best Yet. I added a Filigree accent and the silver brads on the side. The sentiment was punched with the large oval punch from SU! I tried to do the Gamsol technique with the Cardinal bird. I used my Prisma colored pencils and OMS. It is hard to see, but I used the clear stardust pen on the pine needles. The image and sentiment are up on dimensionals.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!!
